Fort Bend County Libraries’ Mission Bend Branch Library will present an introductory class, “All-Levels Yoga,” on Saturday, May 18th, beginning at 10:30 am, in the Meeting Room  of the library, located at 8421 Addicks Clodine Road in Southwest Houston.

Registered yoga instructor Ashley Schmidt will present a basic introduction and demonstration of this low-impact form of physical exercise and meditation. Learn the benefits of yoga, the various yoga postures and the correct way to breathe to receive maximum benefit.

“Yoga allows us to connect our physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies so that we feel grounded and calm as we move through our day,” says Schmidt, who teaches yoga in Richmond and has logged 200 hours as a registered yoga instructor.

All experience levels are welcome to attend. The program will be modified based on the experience levels of those in attendance. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to bring a yoga mat and a water bottle.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Mission Bend Branch Library at 832-471-5300 or the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
